During the last two months I was busy with the tasks that are involved in selecting and grooming talent for my newly established Principal Division. Wearing the hat as a Principal agent/manager once again, I began by interviewing and meeting with those of you who were interested in a spot on my Principal Roster. The whole process has left me with a feeling of satisfaction and with a renewed energy and anticipate that great things are to come yet-- I am looking forward positively.
For those of you whose contracts have been signed, and whose membership on Casting Worbook has commenced, and/or have been activated under my roster- I am happily submmitting you on a daily basis as I get breakdowns that are suitable for your character type, and age range. Keep in mind consistency is key. And, age range is age range. I am not going to stretch beyond what is realistic just for the sake of submitting you.
I mentioned to all of you that it also takes time to get things going especially for those of you who haven’t done this in a while, or id you are in the development stages of your career. Your patience and persistence is paramount to your success. You should know that your enthusiasm fuels my own drive and determination to help you to succeed.
It is my mission and goal to build the best darn "personalized" talent agency in Toronto. L. A. Entertainment is for actors that want to be working, to feel worthy, to feel appreciated, respected and admired. You are the reason I do this. Monetary gain has never been my motivator but let us face it...money makes the world go round! But, in essence, my heart is here-with yours and I am determined to help you pursue that which you love to do- to Act and to perform.
I had hoped for a November 1, 2012 launch for the Principal Division and pretty much was on target. There are some of you who have outstanding items to do/get me..but surely that will all happen as you can do so. It is your responsibilty to get onto Casting Workook, alert me once you have made that step, and get your pic/cv up to date and to me as you can. Without these tools I cannot sell you to anyone at all. For those people who quickly and efficiently were able to do so...I thank you very much for being so quick to facilitate my requests so that I may begin to submit you in a timely fashion.
I am happy to announce that in a two week period, I have had over 15 auditions that have resulted in One Actor being booked on a TV Series! Congratulations to you! You know who you are! All of you have done me proud who have auditioned thus far, and being the professionals you are, you have given it your best, and have kept me informed of your availability and any potential conflicts as they cropped up. As well I have forged relationships with some wonderful Casting Directors, and as I earn their trust/respect, and they continue to call auditions in--so too must you when you are booked or an audition! You can do so by showing up on time, being the professional that you are, arriving with a headshot and updated C.V to your audition, and preparing any sides that had been offered to you. Now go and Break a Leg!
JR Beardsley has been in the land of Bollywood working hard with the creators of a Theme Park there! Congratulations to JR, and a huge thanks to Rick for putting him on the road again! Can't wait to see what you have drummed up JR!!! I am so proud of you. I bet that all the critters miss you back home. ;)
